The roughly $500 billion home-appliance industry has been transformed thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic and it shows no signs of slowing down. As households have become a more vital hub of activity (due to social distancing) companies have been retrofitting their appliances with sterilizing ultraviolet lights previously used in water purifiers, and companies like Whirlpool have touted washing machines with built-in-heating that removes germs and allergens from your laundry.

As the corona virus hit in late Q1 of 2020, appliances sales went through the roof, as people began to stockpile meats and food. With this increased demand came the necessity to pivot to a new branding of appliance, with hygiene and purity in mind. With these overhaul comes the demand for more appliance lighting, of which BJB is the worldwide leader in servicing. As previously noted, our products are found in many of the most popular brands in the market, and we service both hot and cold appliances.

With the major re-positioning in branding within the appliance industry, and the fact that the 'stay-at-home' environment has compelled households to upgrade their appliances, BJB continues to aggressively service major manufacturers around the world with the solutions that light their appliances, during this time of exponential demand.

Hygiene, smart-homes, and upgrading current appliances due to increase household use has driven this demand, and developing appliances is now done with hygiene and smart homes in minds.

Let's take a look at our products for HOT appliances:

Also, cooking zones, ovens, cooker hoods and other large kitchen appliances are showpieces which gain in value when they are presented in a contemporary fashion with modern LED lighting.
